Acini di Pepe (peppercorns) belong to the minute pasta family to be cooked in broth. This pasta shape was undoubtedly invented to stimulate the imagination of children who commonly eat this pasta in baby food and vegetable soups. It is shaped like peppercorns and is fun and appealing. It is especially good for preparing clear soups such as broths or consommé, enhanced with croutons or vegetables cut in julienne strips. This pasta can be used in thick creamy or velvety soups.

I love it!! Used it as soon as I got it. Service was great too. In fact I placed another order for cookies. Pricing is reasonable.
I have not been able to locate this item in any grocery stores in my area. Am glad to have found it.
Acini di Pepe Pasta can no longer be found in my local groceries. It is the only pasta used in a fruit salad I love. Thank you for your online purchase method. Shipping cost is more than the cost of the pasta and it also take almost a week to be shipped that is my only negative issue.
